Dont have time to say much, just back from Leopardstown, the last winner got me out of trouble to come out level. Still seriously annoyed Roan Inish was allowed to run after what happened her in the stalls, it was kaput before the race even started. I'd say about 10 times out of 10 when the stalls open a horses bolts out, but Roan Inish didnt, why? Because she had her foot stuck over the side of the stalls thats why! I felt a bit sorry for her when Kevin pushed her to the front straight after the break, he gave her a harder race than was needed after what had happened, she didnt look to be enjoying it at all. Good horse but that might have ruined her. Calmed down a little now but I was seriously pissed off watching it happen. Casual Conquest wasnt good enough no issues there and Cape Blanco looked really good! But still needed the last one to win to get to level for the night even after backing the first winner too, lost a good few trebles, doubles and trixies. I should stop doing them really but my eyes light up with the returns if it clicks, I'll have to stop.
The U19 cricket went well this morning, unexpectedly! England were 1.05 to chase down 192 I think, about that anyway, it looked really short and I just took it on in hope more than anything else. They ended up losing! I was cuffed to lay a 1.05 loser, went all green for €225 at one stage just before the flip flop. If it had of been a more important game I might have had a massive green but I was delighted with €225 off a game I wasnt expecting money off. Theres a lot of reasons to lay short prices on one day cricket though, even if the 1.1ish goes out to the 1.2s its still a fantastic trade, you dont lose much either if it goes kaput.
